Problem passing data from share to alfresco

Hi,

I created a webscript for searching the space in alfresco.
the following are the files I created

search.get.desc.xml
search.get.html.ftl – which contains a form three text boxes to enter search terms
search.post.desc.xml
search.post.html.ftl
search.post.js — this to process the fields  submitted and search the repository and return the results.In this I am using formdata.fields to retrieve the values from form fields.

The whole search function is working well.
Now I wanted to call this webscript from share.

I created the following files

propertysearch.get.desc.xml
propertysearch.get.html.ftl — contains form which was there in search.get.html.ftl
propertysearch.post.desc.xml
propertysearch.post.js — contains the following code.

var scriptURL= "/sample/search";
var connector = remote.connect("alfresco");
var postBody = {};
postBody.formdata =formdata;
var result = connector.post(scriptURL,jsonUtils.toJSONString(postBody), "application/json");
model.result = result;


I am not sure whether this is how we send the data because I am getting an error saying

In the search.post.js I am retrieving the form fields data like this.

for each (field in formdata.fields)
{
  if (field.name == "ref")
  {
    ref= field.value;
  }
}



propertysearch.post.html.ftl

I am new to alfresco. Any Help is deeply appreciated.
